    Dear Albion Players,

    Unfortunately Albion is yet again under a series of DDOS attacks, clearly directly focussing us and using an entirely new vector of attack.

    Since the attacks are ongoing and are leading to an extreme degradation in service, we’ve decided to deactivate the game until we can properly adjust our defenses again.

    Implementing a solution is expected to take at least half a day, so its not worth staying up waiting for the game to come back online for tonight.

    Sincere apologies for the disruption again, we’re doing everything we can to bring the game back online as soon as possible.

    [UPDATE 22.06.07:33] We managed to bring the server back online after pulling an all-nighter. Everything seems to be running smoothly for now, but we will be closely monitoring the situation.

    [Update 22.06. 09:06] The server seems to be playing ball so far. The emergency solution we deployed overnight however is not as strong as our normal setup. There is a chance that we will have to deploy temporary queues throughout today as we continue tweaking it. We'll keep you posted.
